Snuffy: I know what a crotch is; I didn't know anybody pronounced it "crutch." Thanks for the clarification.

Here's another one:


JUST THE TAX FOR ME
As sung by Peggy Seeger & ? on "Naming of Names" (1990)

I'm going to pay the poll tax.
I want to pay the poll tax.
I'd love to pay the poll tax.
It's just the tax for me.

My gran will pay the poll tax.
My kids will pay the poll tax.
My cat will pay the poll tax,
And so will you and me.

MPs will pay the poll tax.
VIPs will pay the poll tax.
Mrs T will pay the poll tax,
So it's the tax for me.

Hand, or foot, or thumb tax,
Elbow, knee, or bum tax,
It ain't insane or dumb tax.
It's any tax for me.

I would pay a rain tax,
A train, a grain, a drain tax,
But if they make a brain tax,
It won't apply to me,
Or Mrs T.
